Free and Reduced Program

  • Since the start of the pandemic in 2020, Parkway has provided free meals for all students through the funding provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, which has been extended multiple times by Congress. That funding has expired, which means that free meals will no longer be available to all Parkway students in the 2022-2023 school year. Families who submitted and were approved for free/reduced meals 21-22 School Year, will carry over that status for the first 30 days of the 2022-2023 School Year.

    All families are required to reapply starting July 2022 when the income guidelines change in order to be eligible for free/reduced meals throughout the whole school year of 2022-2023.
